Learn why it is important to secure a crime scene, why fingerprints are critical clues, and how DNA sampling works.

From the scene of the crime to testing in the laboratory, you will get to know how all the clues are put together to tell a story and reveal the guilty person. Discover how methods have changed since the days of Sherlock Holmes, the latest technology in use today, and techniques of the future.
